Dr. Rajnish's Qi-Gong Tai Chi Therapy

Dr. Rajnish's Qi-Gong Tai Chi Therapy 

·         represented three supernatural concepts of Qi-Gong Tai Chi Therapy
Physical (body),
Energetical (breath), and
Spiritual (mind) manifestation.
·         Traditionally, each disciple were skilled in three distinct schools of esoteric training,
Medical, and
·         All three of these important systems required the disciple to continually train in:
Essence (Jing) via Gongli Training,
Energy (Qi) via Qigong Training, and

Spirit/Mind (Shen) via Shengong Training

Wai dan or Wei gong: It is an ancient form of External Endurance Skill training. It works on skin, tissue, muscle, and tendon and bone structure. The focus is getting the mind on the above mentioned area. In Wei gong the Qi is generated from the cell nucleus of the muscle tissue and works on the need, and not from lower Dantian. Muscle fibers need to constantly contract and expand with the help of mind and Qi, or else fatty deposits in the layers of the muscle making it stiffened, and deteriorate. More you use muscle fiber with mind and Qi, through concentration the more strong the fibers it becomes delivering more blood, Qi, nutrition to the muscle fibers, making it stronger and self-reliant. Wai dan or Wei gong or hard style, uses the focus, and mind intent, with Li or power of the muscle tissue to strike a target, similarly to Tiger style. It specifically focuses on training and strengthening the body’s tissues to move and respond as a solid, powerful unit. Weigong Training was traditionally categorized as consisting of basic calisthenics (push-ups, pull-ups, etc.), different forms of weight training, isometric and stance training (i.e., holding deep stances for extended periods of time), as well as aerobic and anaerobic conditioning (including climbing mountains and trees, sprinting, and long distance walking), and massage. Wei Gong trains the muscles, bones, and flesh, and utilizes such techniques as stretching, hitting objects, or using various types of weights. According to ancient teachings, “Without a Wei gong basis, Neigong is primarily useless.”

It is traditionally trained in order to access deeper states of physical, mental, and spiritual powers. Neigong trains the body’s Jing (Essence), Qi (Energy), and Shen (Spirit), and utilizes such techniques as focused intention, active visualization, and both Quiescent and Dynamic Qigong training. Neigong includes specific exercises to train the coordination of various muscle groups in order to act as one unit. It also emphasizes developing the ability to coordinate the breathing with the movements, and the ability to stay relaxed and responsive during a confrontation. The Neigong techniques are called “internal” because they do not involve any obvious external action. Oftentimes, there is an overemphasis on the more esoteric Neigong side of training, but without a Weigong base, the results of the Neigong training becomes inconsistent and weak. In other words, the direct coordination of physical strength means nothing, if you have not developed the strength to coordinate and release the power. Sometimes, part of this imbalance in training comes from an overemphasis on Qigong exercises for the development of power.

Gong Li (Strength/Power skill): A student’s cultivated “Skill of Strength and Power” was measured according to his ability to control the various energy field within his Three Bodies (i.e., the Physical Body, Energy Body, and Spirit Body). These important physical training methods were needed in order to increase endurance, strength, stamina, and power. Traditionally, an individual’s Gongli ability was measured by his capacity to perform, maintain, and endure certain esoteric training techniques (e.g., hold and maintain certain postures for extended period of time, demonstrate certain feats of strength and power, rooting skill, etc.).

Qigong (Energy/Breath Skill): Qigong specifically focuses on training the Body, Breath, and Mind during various forms of breathing practice. The effectiveness of a student’s Qigong is measured according to his ability to activate and control the energy generated from his Three Breaths (i.e., the Physical Breath, Energetic Breath, and Spiritual Breath). This important energy and breath training is needed to increase the student’s cultivation, generation, and projection of energy. This form of alchemical training also focuses on utilizing the breath in order to train the energy and spirit to access subtle spiritual dimensions. The concentration is focused on the development of the student’s imagination, visualization, hearing, smelling, tasting, touching, breathing, muscular relaxation, and postural integration. There are nine special internal energetic imbalances that cause the breath and Qi to immediately respond in an unnatural way. These internal energetic imbalances are described as follows:

o    Anger: Lifts the Breath and Energy (Qi)

o    Joy: Slows the Breath and Energy (Qi)

o    Thinking: Binds the Breath and Energy (Qi)

o    Grief: Disperses the Breath and Energy (Qi)

o    Fear: Lowers the Breath and Energy (Qi)

o    Terror: Throws the Breath and Energy (Qi) out of harmony

o    Hardwork/Labor: Wastes the Breath and Qi

o    Cold: Gathers the Breath and Energy (Qi) inward

o    Heat: Scatters the Breath and Energy (Qi) outward

Shen Gong (Spirit Skill): Shen gong training, is a form of Mental Training, that specifically focuses on utilizing the intention of the Heart/Mind and Spirit (i.e., the individual’s focused desire and passion), via the use of special imaginations and visualizations. In this special training, the student’s mind is utilized in order to augment his Neigong and Qigong training methods. A student’s Shen gong is measured according to his ability to activate and control the Three Minds (i.e., the Physical Mind, Energetic Mind, and Spiritual Mind). This important training is needed to increase the cultivation, generation, and projection of thoughts and intentions. This form of alchemical training also focuses on utilizing the mind (thoughts and emotions), in order to train the energy and spirit to access and enter subtle spiritual realms.

Our specialised sports and competitive fitness programme aims at helping professional athletes to dramatically increase their core body strength, as well as to increase the recovery rate of the body from injuries and strain. Sports persons from sports such as cricket, football, hockey, tennis that consistently put the body under repetitive strain can use our training for both prevention as well as post injury recovery. Sports that require greater mental strength and focus like shooting and archery can benefit from the mental training that forms part of the course. Lastly, considering the martial origins of our training system, professional martial arts practitioners will also find our training to be very useful as a form of internal conditioning.

The concept is drawn from the 5 Elements, tattavas, skandas, theory… This theory could be applied for any game, sports or martial arts. As per the theory:

Earth: deals with vastu – object i.e. strengthening, stabilizing and building stamina or endurance for the training.

Water: deals with samjna – intention i.e. building flexibility, fluidity and adaptability for the movement.

Fire: deals with prayoga – act or effort i.e. build power and speed for the movement.

Air or Metal: deals with klesa – mental satisfaction i.e. build clarity of mind, or thought, to execute the action, tactics or strategy without any hindrances.

Space or Wood: deals with nispati – accomplishment i.e. to build any movement effortlessly – without the cumbersome blockage of physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual strain.
